lower among obama supporters and democrats in general than is typical for that kind of cross-party opposition. but the bigger issue was among independent voters, among the sort of middle of the electorate. he was just an unappealing candidate, and it wasn't just that they weren't excited about him, they actively didn't like him. to say that you feel unfavorably about somebody is kind of a statement. most of the time when people have to flip a coin, they say, ah, they seem okay. and they weren't saying that about romney, which was a big problem for him. and i think some people would say it took him longer to tackle that issue over the summer than probably was ideal. that may well have been a reflection of the obama campaign's efforts in the early part of the summer or to continue to cast him in a negative light. they started running ads very early etch sizing his wealth, emphasizing the sort of class issues that could potentially drive some people away. whether that was a big issue or not is hard to know, it was of targeted in certain swing states, it wasn't a general campaign

that a democratic president picks even a moderate republican and granted, this is a guy who says he voted for obama twice, but you know, okay. so the best moderate of republicans, but still, he's a republican so you'd think he'd go through, but you think that this is actually controversial even according to liberal democrats? >> well, two categories here and the thing that wendell was talking about with pro-israel groups is a big deal. the things that he's said, he referred to the jewish lobby, which is a charged phrase when talking about groups in the united states that support israel, they're strong opposition among conservative pro-israel factions in the united states, but there's also among liberals misgiving and they want to hear from hagel, bowing and scraping and carden and others who are pro israel want to hear hagel say, i'm sorry, i shouldn't have. we may be on the verge of that great washington phrase "inartfully phrased", and then the second half, the fact that republicans dislike him more than they dislike some democrats, not just because of the israel stuff, but in 2006 and 2007 when

more democrats. so it is coming, it's coming and obviously clinton and obama have laid out their initial thoughts. none of the three have laid out enough and i have written speeches on how i think we should get out, but in the interest of time i'll go to your first question on petraeus. well, i think on the face of those selections by secretary gates, they were okay, petraeus is a very accomplished general, very smart general. he knows that area. certainly secretary gates and the president deserve commanders that they want, that is why i think in my 12 years in senate, i have only voted against one cabinet nominee. unless the nominee is so bad in my opinion and so beyond the ability to rehabilitate then i always give the president the benefit of the doubt because i think the president deserves his team. petraeus is probably a good choice. got to remember something about the army, though, or the service, foreign service, which many of you serve. the war is not petraeus' war. the war is the president's war. and the military, all the people who work in the government, they fo

, putting the president and his democrats down all the time. he said something about the president being too cheery making a joke. i think he messed up. he acted grouchy and said obama had all of the activists clapping. he's basically calling most of the -- i think most of the country is the same and the ones who are republican haven't changed yet. but they will as soon as, you know, they find out what's up. i think they are jealous. they don't believe that obama's actually president. i want to tell mccain and lindsey graham that he's the best president we've ever had, ever. so that's all i wanted to say. >> kristin i thank you for the call. i have to tell you, i agree with you. like ithey say haters are going to hate. it's just that simple. players are going to play. i think obama, he is playing here but i think kristin brings up a good point. most people, a lot of democrats, you know, they like chuck hagel. there are some in the progressive camp who have a problem because of his comments about the lgbt community. >> that's understandable. and i hear th
